  1. I just don't know what I witnessed tonight in that performance, but what a team of players we have! Too difficult to single out individuals as the whole team played their part in that victory. My thoughts are with the performance of Zander with at least a couple of great saves....and that's before his assist and the penalty saves. Zander now has a goalpost in Ibrox named after him! O'Halloran with his pace tonight and never giving up in winning us the injury time corner. Our defenders Kerr, Gordon and McCart cleared pretty much most of what was pitched at them. Rooney putting in a shift and unlucky not to score a 2nd half daisy cutter which brushed past the post, and McCann with countless number of challenges and cool as a cucumber in converting his penalty. Wotherspoon and Craig pulled all the strings and Craig with his corners keeping Rangers under pressure. How important a player has Kane become when you take his work rate into account and the crucial goals he scores (away to Aberdeen last game of season to take us into Europe) and tonight's tap in. Even Tanser ran his socks off and hit an incredible volley straight from a corner which McGregor was well placed to divert away. If that had hit the net it would've been up there for Goal of the Season and nearly as good as Lappins goal there a few seasons ago. Both May and Melamed put in great shifts in closing down their opponents, but every player played their part, hat's off to all our penalty takers. The question is how long can we keep this group of players, manager and coaches?
  2. Not a shock result really....a typical Saint's result helping out a team struggling. I was hoping for the team to show they were hurting after losing the away record to Hearts and the two results against Celtic, but whether this goes down to poor tactics/team formation or Hamilton getting the new manager bounce, it's once again disappointing and frustrating!! Tommy stated beforehand that he was'nt underestimating Hamilton, pity he did'nt tell the players!
  3. Great win tonight...once again Saints find a way to get the job done! If.. and it's a big if...we win our game in hand we will only be 2 points behind The Rangers who have spent £14 million to get where they are!!
  4. It's the Saints way...unfortunately!! having only managed home wins against Dundee, StMirren and Hamilton it's our home form which is disappointing.
  5. How good a player was John O'Neil, yet another Saints player who was overlooked whilst playing for us and only picked up one cap for Scotland having moved to Hibs!
  6. Should be a nice at Chris Millar Testimonial Dinner tonight.....Morton 5 Partick Thistle 1 and a late winner for Saints!!
  7. 37mins gone Cedric Kipre of Motherwell has commited 4 fouls yet no booking...not even for persistent fouling, just waiting for Murray Davidson to commit his 1st foul and end out in the ref's book! Just realised the ref is William Collum!
  8. Agree with most of the posts above regarding McCann's two game ban having less of an effect on him or Dundee FC than Zander missing two matches for us. Once again our punishment or part in any offence is deemed to be at least the same or worse as others even when reported otherwise! I guess that's probably because it was taken from the officials report or whoever was in closest attendance rather than just the TV evidence. The fact that McCann has now appealed this and since the incident is constantly in the news talking about Caulker and Graeme Murty his upcoming appeal will be dismissed and Saints and Zander will be the only ones to receive any punishment.
  9. Whilst I don't believe two wrongs make a right, the decisions made last night and the downright lack of balance by both the pundits and media coverage is what I am disappointed with. Whether you believe Alston's challenge merits a yellow or straight red, it is not receiving a balanced response from the pundits or media. The referee called both Alston's and McGinn challenges a yellow, yet missed the shoulder/elbow by Marvin Bartley which could have been a red card. The pundits and referee chose to ignore Bartley's challenge along with other challenges he made and his subsequent dissent to both the ref and his assistant. After Anderson and Alston's bookings the pundits were questioning whether the ref should produce another yellow then red for both players following 2nd tackles, but they didn't query why the referee ignored similar challenges and surrounding of officials made by Hibs players going unpunished! Alston only got some positive comment by Steven Craigan when he stated McGinn had planted his foot across Alston to draw the tackle which caused both to go down and shortly after Alston was substituted by Tommy. This is why watching StJohnstone can be so frustrating when all we ask is to be treated fairly, but continually get this type of coverage in games. I guess I'll just have to wait to see the edited, balanced view from the BBC Sportscene experts in order to draw my final conclusion.
  10. Having watched the game at McDairmid I came home to view the recorded BT match and can only agree with many on here that we get unfairly treated by both the officials and media. Although this has always been the case over many seasons, I've lost count the number of times a Saints player is booked for a foul, but a player from the opposition commits an equally or worse foul and doesn't get punished! Although this happens to every team at some point, we do seem to get more than our fair share. It's even more frustrating when the pundits on TV highlight, as in Alston's tackle on McGinn that this should be a red card, then completely ignore the equally bad tackle McGinn made on Wotherspoon! Saints received five bookings last night with Hibs receiving one, referee called most correctly, but Liam Craig was booked for dissent whilst many Hibs players were able to confront both the ref and his assistants without being punished or mentioned by pundits or media, Several other challenges went unpunished or were never mentioned including McGinn's challenge and a shoulder / elbow blow to Liam Craig which was similar to the challenge deemed red in the recent televised match. For the many people who say " it will even itself out over the season" I can tell you having watched Saints for many years, it hasn't evened itself out over my lifetime far less a season!
